Rome Segway Tour Description
Rome is a true ‘outdoor museum’ making the Segway the perfect vehicle from which to experience it! The historic center of the Eternal City is a treasure trove of stunning monuments, bustling piazzas and fountain masterpieces – all of which you can discover on our half-day Segway tour of the Best of Rome.
Your experience begins at our comfortable office, just a five-minute walk from the Colosseum. From here your expert Tour Guide will start with a 30 minute Segway training session. Within minutes you’ll be gliding around like a pro; our Segways are easy and intuitive to use.
Once you have your bearings – we’ll roll through Rome’s medieval streets on a quest to discover its most famous architectural and artistic wonders. To reach the heart of the historic center, we’ll ride along the famous Imperial Forum to the Campidoglio square, designed by the master Michelangelo himself. From here we’ll head towards Campo de’ Fiori, known for its daily street market and nightlife. Famous Piazza Navona is a short glide away. Here, we’ll experience Bernini’s incredible Fountain of the Four Rivers, which has recently been restored to it’s full glory. Navona Square is home to talented street performers and is always filled with a lively crowd.
A sure highlight of the day is a visit to the impressive Pantheon, one of Rome’s best- preserved ancient temples – now a consecrated basilica boasting a stunning 142 foot freestanding dome. We’ll even stop in Sant’Ignazio, one of Rome’s most impressive and lesser-known churches.
Our last two stops need no introduction: you’ll toss a coin and make a wish to return to Rome at the one and only Trevi Fountain before culminating at the foot of the Spanish Steps.
At each of Rome’s famous sights you’ll enjoy a presentation on a personal iPod, which you’ll be provided with at the beginning of the tour.
